Transcript of CADL-2

Personal Opinion of the Assessment:
The test items are functional and through in capturing the true meaning of everyday activities within the test items.
Easy to score, administer, and follow along.
Examiner Record Booklet includes ‘Identifying Information’ and ‘History’ sections.
Short so the patient does not get fatigued.
Introduces the exam really well with personable questions at the start to ease nerves.
Visuals take into account possible visual impairments.
Verbal and nonverbal responses are acceptable. Purpose of Test Communication Activities of Daily Living-Second Edition

1999 30 Minutes Normative Data 175 adults with neurological communicative disorders resulting primarily from left- or right- hemisphere stroke or traumatic brain injury Validity
Criterion-Related Validity: Compared stanine to Western Aphasia Battery quotient and results indicate this test is related to language functions as measured by a standardized test of aphasia.
Content Validity: 98% of test items measure functional communication. Scoring System Explanation: 1. Count the points received for all 50 items.
2. On page 1, Section III of the Examiner Record Booklet, record the Raw Score.
3. Use the Raw Score Converter located in the Examiner's Manual on page 37 to find the Percentile and Stanine Score that are associated with the Raw Score.
4. Record the Percentile and Stanine Score in Section III of the Examiner Record Booklet. Cons:
Not all materials are included.
It does not have subtests, making it difficult to determine the patient’s specific deficits (you have to look in the manual for what each individual question assessed).
The question using the telephone is outdated (no one uses telephone directories anymore).
Difficult to determine if responses are considered “adequate” or “incorrect” during test administration (would need to either have the book next to you or record the entire assessment). 2:41-3:05 Found to be valid as a functional communication test for adults with brain damage. By: Cindee Alvarez and Nancy Rodriguez Categories Measured Instructions: Introduction to the assessment, be natural.
